Vevey/ Reggio Emilia, January 15, 2024 – The EQUAL-SALARY Foundation is pleased to announce that Credem S.p.A. has obtained the EQUAL-SALARY certification for the second time for all its employees in Italy. The international EQUAL-SALARY certification is a symbol of excellence in terms of equal pay and equal opportunities, combining a statistical analysis of all the salaries and an on-site audit entrusted to PwC. With our certification, Credem proves that it applies equal pay and equal opportunities for women and men.
The global EQUAL-SALARY certification is valid for 3 years, during which, the company undergoes two monitoring audits. After 3 years, the organization needs to renew the certification process with a new salary analysis and a full on-site audit.
« A second certification is always a source of great satisfaction for the EQUAL-SALARY Foundation as it demonstrates trust in our service and a strong will for continuous improvement. With every certification cycle, our certified organisations strengthen their processes, get more insights and ensure fairness and equal opportunities for all. Through this achievement, Credem is consolidating its standing as a leading Italian banking group in equal pay and equal opportunities between men and women. We are very proud of this great achievement, and we are confident that it will inspire other companies to join the equal pay movement », commented Noémie Storbeck co-CEO of the EQUAL-SALARY Foundation.
« This recognition confirms the validity of the efforts we put in place every day to improve our company and in particular the way in which people work and interact. Pay equity is an important aspect in an organization like ours that rewards merit and respects and values everyone’s uniqueness. Over time we have developed a new concept of diversity, going beyond gender, and putting the well-being of our people at the centre. This is an essential element for us to continue to create sustainable value and well-being over time for our customers, our people and the community and represents a concrete example of the realization of our corporate purpose and of how we act on our values daily: simplicity, resourcefulness and trust », added Angelo Campani, General Manager of Credem.
